No, getting through the rapid is about steering well.
In life, we need to live deliberately, “letting our eyes looks right on (with fixed purpose), and let your gaze be straight before you” (Proverbs 4:25). If we don’t take control of where we are heading, we will be like a canoe that is picked up and tossed in the rapids. We must be on the alert and ready. Steer away from people and things that distract and hold you back. Instead, run towards those that keep you afloat and moving forwards. We need to “Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but wise“ (Ephesians 5: 15).
1 John 2:17
And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever.
